THE FALL OF ALGIERS, A NEW OPERA, IN THREE ACTS....

London: Published by T. Dolby, [nd. but 1825]. 50pp. (lacking terminal leaf of advertisements). Extracted. A few marginal nicks, a 19th century stamp of a now defunct library appears faintly on the title, else a very good copy. Item #WRCLIT28147

First edition. The music was composed by H.R. Bishop, and the play was first performed on 19 January 1825 at the Theatre Royal. It was first performed in Philadelphia in 1827. Hill's entry is for the later (ca. 1829) Cumberland edition, as, evidently, is Wegelin's rather vague reference. BAL 15787. HILL 225. WEGELIN (Plays), p.65.
